This is the establishment report for the alpine treeline monitoring program for the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The purpose of this report is to describe the sites at which monitoring has been established, document the methods used and the objectives of the research. The introduction sets out a brief justification for the establishment of the treeline monitoring program while the discussion proposes possible processes of vegetation change that may occur based on ecological theory and research results already published for other sites. Complementary research and possible ways in which the data collected may be used to assist in developing management strategies to conserve the natural values of the alpine ecosystem are also discussed.
